Intelligent Transport System raises safety level

This sounds like science fiction but the technology exists. Known as the intelligent transport system (ITS), it is being tested at Toyota’s ITS Proving Ground.
Located at the company’s Higashi-Fuji Technical Centre in Susono City, Japan, the ITS Proving Ground is a 3.5-hectare site that faithfully replicates a real urban environment, complete with intersecting streets, pedestrian crosswalks, and traffic signals. It is equipped with optical beacons, government-allocated 760 MHz transmitters to link the various ITS detection and communication systems, vehicle detection sensors and pedestrian detection sensors.
